On today's episode of rabble radio, we're discussing the Progressive International movement, a budding network of social movements, activists, and political organizers around the world who are linking up local struggles with an international vision to rebuild a progressive world order. Progressive International is working towards a vision of a world built around a shared progressive values of solidarity, prosperity, and equity.
The movement was launched in November 2018 at the Sanders Institute in Vermont.
On today's program, rabble's Assistant Editor Sophia Reuss interviews NDP MP Niki Ashton. She was at the initial launch of the Progressive International, and spoke on a panel with former Greek Finance Minister and leader of the Democracy in Europe Movement, DiEM25. Yanis Varoufakis, as well as U.S. Senator Bernie Sanders, and other prominent progressive figures.

More people are reading rabble.ca than ever and unlike many news organizations, we have never put up a paywall – at rabble we’ve always believed in making our reporting and analysis free to all, while striving to make it sustainable as well. Media isn’t free to produce. rabble’s total budget is likely less than what big corporate media spend on photocopying (we kid you not!) and we do not have any major foundation, sponsor or angel investor. Our main supporters are people and organizations -- like you. This is why we need your help. You are what keep us sustainable.
rabble.ca has staked its existence on you. We live or die on community support -- your support! We get hundreds of thousands of visitors and we believe in them. We believe in you. We believe people will put in what they can for the greater good. We call that sustainable.
So what is the easy answer for us? Depend on a community of visitors who care passionately about media that amplifies the voices of people struggling for change and justice. It really is that simple. When the people who visit rabble care enough to contribute a bit then it works for everyone.
And so we’re asking you if you could make a donation, right now, to help us carry forward on our mission. Make a donation today.
